|The genesis of UPWAN was to help those who are the most vulnerable (Rural poor, , women, etc.) and are in urgent need of help. So we organized ourselves in the movement towards the above cause and consequently articulated the aims and objectives we had in our mind.
From very beginning, we, at UPWAN , believe that development has to be holistic, to bring real fruits to the most needy. In this connection, we worked in the area of –
2. Skill Development
